  • Download the latest standalone utorrent version, and copy it onto your data stick.
  • Create an empty data file with notepad or any other text editor, and name it settings.dat
  • Place the settings.dat file in the same folder on your portable disk as uTorrent.
  • Run uTorrent from your portable drive and configure the options and preferences.

Now you’re ready to go. You can start downloading at school, and finish at home. And the good thing is that you don’t need to install uTorrent or another BitTorrent client, just a USB-port, that’s all you need.

Right click to adjust bandwidth settings If you’re planning to use uTorrent on different computers with different bandwidth settings, make sure that you set the maximum upload speed to 90% of the available upload speed to guarantee fast download speeds.

Tip: An easy way to adjust the up- and download speeds is by right clicking the uTorrent icon in the taskbar.


Other useful (torrent) portable applications are:

VLC media player: A bunch of codecs are included in this great media player, so you don’t have to install the latest codec on every computer you’re working on.

7-zip: Some torrents might be archived. 7-zip extracts .zip, rar, and other archives.
